CYNTHIA TURNER’S
CYNOPSIS


05/21/04

Good morning. It’s Friday, May 21, 2004, and this is your first early morning briefing.

8p      One on One
830p    Half and Half

UPN New Series:

  • Second Time Around
  • is comedy about a couple who married, divorced, and have just married again. While that may seem a little flat or ordinary for a sitcom premise, the kicker here is the chemistry between the two leads – Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Parker, who happen to be a couple in real life as well. Regan Jon Inc. / C to the B Prods in assoc with Paramount Network Television.

  • Veronica Mars
  • is a drama about a girl who was once in with the in crowd, now she clearly on the outs.  And she still has to go to high school everyday and see these people, not to mention helping her father out with his private detective business during her off hours.  This series seems to have all the right pieces, it’s just a matter if they’re assembled properly, and the amount of tape seen at the upfront was not enough to distinguish that. Warner Bros. Television, Stu Seagall Prods, Silver Pictures Television.

  • Kevin Hill
  • on the other hand is very well put together in all areas.  This story about a top notch lawyer (Taye Diggs), clearly on the rise, clearly with power and influence, and young and single at the same time. A snappy dresser (seriously snappy) and a look in his eye that makes you grin.  And then one of this season’s more popular drama premises kicks in – a family member dies and he inherits the infant daughter.  His life is upside down and right side up all at the same time. While this premise has been introduced elsewhere, it seems to resonate with this group more solidly, making this show the showstopper of the UPN upfront.  Already fully gelled, already has an identity.  And is clearly in the hottest time period the network has to offer. Icon Prods, Touchstone Television.

Midseason Series:

  • The Missy Elliott Project (working title) will step in between the two complete cycles of America’s Next Top Model (13 eps in each cycle). This reality show takes the Top Model format and applies it to music.  Missy takes a group of aspiring singers on the road – literally, in a tour bus – and takes them to all sorts of small towns America, testing and challenging them over and over. Each ep (10 all together) finds one singer hitting the road, headed back home under their own steam.

Quick Note:  Les Moonves says a 6th night of UPN may come along as soon as next year.

New Series:

  • The North Shore
  • is set on the island of Hawaii in a fabulous resort hotel with fabulous guests with fabulously demanding demands, and a staff (the core cast) trying to please everyone.  This show presents all kinds of opportunity for guest stars (think Love Boat the Drama) and plenty of nice people to look at. 20th Century Fox Television

  • Athens
  • is from the same guys as The O.C., is billed as being more adult, yet it centers on a freshman college dorm and the new found freedoms out from under the rule of mom and dad. The story also delves into teacher/student relationships and being away from home for the first time. Wonderland Sound and Vision / Warner Bros. Television

  • The Casino
  • from Mark Burnett follows the day to day reality of buying a Las Vegas Casino and then learning while your doing – dealing with employees, cheating customers, the works. Coming from Mark Burnett Prods., this show begs a look see.

  • The Billionaire
  • is also a realty show, this one with Sir Richard Branson in the center square. Branson, the Chairman of Virgin Records, Airlines, etc., is a true adventurer and in this series he is looking for the best of the best adventurers in a group of young entrepreneurs as they go galavanting about the world in search of yet more adventure. If they fail to impress, they are sent home. Bunim-Murray Prods.

  • Method & Red
  • is a sitcom about a black family moving into a lily white, locked jawed, high crust neighborhood.  Basically, they scare the neighbors just by showing up and in their efforts to make everyone feel at home, scare them even more. A little too expected, a little too ordinary, but has he right talent to break away if it can turn the corner into the unexpected and the extraordinary.  Regency Television & 20th Century Fox.

  • The Jury
  • is a legal show that begins as they jury is getting their instructions from the judge. They move to the deliberation room where the remainder of the action takes place. We learn of the aspects of the case via their own flashbacks.  Based on the pedigree of this show’s creators/producers, this one will likely stand the test of time.  Levinson/Fontana, 20th Century Fox.

  • House
  • refers to a doctor’s name. Dr. House.  This show looks great. Period.  Medical mysteries – yes there are others next season that delve into the same arena – but no niceties, no frills, no compassion, no bedside manner, all of which make it about as compelling as television gets. Universal Television.

  • Quintuplets
  • is what happens when the babies become teenagers.  Five ill-behaved teens under Andy Richter’s roof, comes across as taking the easy way out – not enough effort went into making the dialogue clever or witty or even funny. 20th Century Television and Imagine Television.

  • Related by Family
  • is about a group of teenagers who hang out in the mall food court.  In the preview tape, the VO says this show is for ‘whoever has dreamed of working in fast food.”  Well, there you go.  Paramount Television.

  • Simple Life 2: Road Trip
  • needs no explanation.  You know what you’re going to get – it’s Paris and Nicole all over again. A little jaw dropping, a lot of funny, always amazing. 20th Century Fox Television / Bunim-Murray Prods.

  • The Next Great Champ
  • with Oscar de la Hoya, in this reality show search for the next great boxer of our time. Who knows, maybe women will watch boxing. Endemol USA.

  • The Inside
  • is about an FBI Agent under cover in a high school, only things rarely go as one might hope. Not enough tape on this one to get a real feeling for the show. We’ll have to wait and see. 20th Century Fox Television / Imagine Television

  • Jonny Zero
  • is an ex con who’s just been released and wants to make a legal go of things, only his old buds are trying to draw him back. Meanwhile the FBI would like him to work for them as an undercover guy with access to some of the city’s seedier bars and living rooms.  Warner Bros. Television in assoc with John Wells Prods.

  • Kelsey Grammer Presents: The Sketch Show,
  • a Laugh-in style sketch comedy show with Kelsey as the self professed “comedic Alfred Hitchcock.” Some silly, some very creative, all part of the package.  This show is based on the sophomore series currently airing in the UK. Grammet Prods / Avalon Television Ltd.

  • The Partner
  • is something like The Apprentice but for lawyers, described as John Houseman meets My Cousin Vinny. Their weekly task is to argue a case, brilliantly, based on real cases. Those on the losing side of the case go before the ‘celebrity’ Judge to argue their own case. The rest continue on to the next round. The last lawyer standing, becomes The Partner. Rocket Science Laboratories.

  • American Dad
  • is an animated series on Sunday nights next year and is about a father who happens to work for the CIA and sees conspiracies and terrorists at every door. Just going about his day trying to protect his family – wife, daughter, son, talking goldfish (secret CIA experiment) and a wisecracking Alien he rescued from Area 51. 20th Century Fox Television

Two notes – Every episode of 24 will air without commercials.  Every single one of them.  And Family Guy returns in June 2005.

Things I learned at the upfronts this week:
Ireland has a population of about 4 million
Brad Garrett thinks he needs to wear a name tag
Everyone is #1 in something, and everyone has viewers who linger longer than anyone else’s, particularly longer than cable.
If the laugh track is just loud enough, and the acoustics in the theatre are just right, the buyers can’t quite figure out if their laughing or not.
ABC is like the fat kids who eat paste.
Keifer Sutherland doesn’t like speaking to a large group: “Public speaking is not my foray.”  Ah.
For some, Elizabeth Vargas reminds them of Cynthia McFadden.
Lenny Kravitz is fine at any time after 3pm

There’s a new reality show scheduled to air on Spike TV in September 2004.  The American Champion will feature an 11-week look into 10 fighters lives during that time and the fights they spar in.  Three judges will pick the contestants by way of 3 round sparring matches from Chicago, Dallas, LA, New York, Philadelphia and Miami.  Viewers will be able to view the fighters everyday lives and behaviors during the 11 week period via in house cameras.  The final contestant will get the chance to fight World Heavyweight Champion Larry Holmes and win a 1-year professional boxing deal.  In addition, the show’s ringside audience will choose a Favorite Underdog.  The underdog will have another try at knocking out the competition.

With assistance from the season finale of That 70’s Show and American Idol, Fox couldn’t lose on Wednesday night, ordering up an overall 7.6/20 A18-49 rating for the night according to Nielsen Media Research.  ABC was #2 with an overall 4.9/13 with the season finale of The Bachelor, followed by NBC 4.0/10, WB 2.7/7, CBS 2.3/6, UPN 1.1/3.  At 8pm Fox led with a 5.6/17 for the full hour, the finale of That 70’s Show brought in a 6.4/18 alone.  ABC’s back to back My Wife & Kids delivered a 2.9/9 for the hour, just a share point ahead of Smallville’s season finale which found 2.6/8, #3 for the hour in the adult demo. Among M18-34, WB was #2 behind Fox with a 3.8/13 for the hour. At 9pm Fox strikes again with a 9.6/23 A1849 (12.0/26 among W18-49). It was followed by ABC’s The Bachelor first hour of its season finale (4.9/12; and a 7.1/16 among W18-49). WB’s Angel, this one the series finale, drew a 2.8/7 A18-49 and was once again #2 among M18-34 behind Fox with a 3.9/11. King of Queens finale on CBS drew a tight 2.8/7. ABC led at 10p with the final finale hour of The Bachelor with Jesse picking Jessica and earning a 6.9/17 for the hour (9.7/22 W18-49). In the adult 18-49 demo, NBC was right on its heels with Law & Order’s 6.4/16.
